We have had light snow on and off for the past 24 hours though up at Tenjin they have collected a healthy 25cm of fresh so a full reset, lifts are humming and its going to be 'the day' up there.

The sun is poking through and it looks like the weather may be breaking. One guest has been with us for a week and a half, is waiting to fly his drone and hasn't had a single clear day...
